Player of the Day
Last Saturday I played Rugby.
I play for Melville and we played Varsity. I got 7 tries and player
of the Day. My position is wing. For player of the day I got a
ribbon, then we went to the club rooms at 5.00 and I waited for my
name to be called out and they told me to come up and get my
hoodie. It has Melville and Player of the Day on it.

On Saturday I went to the Hamilton gardens.
In the Victorian gardens we went to catch tadpoles. We got
lots of them in fact we got so many the pond was nearly empty
of its tadpoles.
In the jungle part of the glass house building we saw 3 pitcher plants, one was yellow, one was green, and one was red. In the desert part of the glass house building we saw some BIG cactus.
In the lake we saw the koi carp fish jumping out
of the water, they catch mosquitos. A swallow
was catching mossies too. We saw
the live turtle that was lucky, but one of the only
things we didn’t see was the eel.It was a great
day becauseyou don’t see the turtle or the koi carp fish
jumping out of the water every day.
I found out that some of the car parks used to be net ball courts.

It doesn’t seem long ago since Room 9 did this
last year, but I just checked and our class blog has had 29, 169
visits. It took 3 years to reach 20,000 and just 6 months to reach
nearly 30,000 visits.
On April 4, 2009...
We have about 100 visitors every day from all over the world, but
that won’t be enough for us to reach 30, 000 before we finish school on
It looks like we’ll have to celebrate our 30, 000 milestone after the
holidays. Well done to everyone who has published their writing,
artwork, photos or movies. Special thanks to the Room Niners,
parents and family who have commented on blog posts and an extra special
thank you to all the people in New Zealand and around the world who have visited and commented.
Cupcakes all round next term! [shall we make them and bake them ourselves?]

On Monday we got a letter from Richie McCaw.
It asks us if we wanted to play for the Small Blacks. We all said yes!
We play for Melville. We play Rugby – it’s just what we do.

This morning my dad found a stick insect on our door.
He picked it up and put it in an old ice cream container with gladwrap on top. He poked holes in the gladwrap with a fork.
I brought it to school and showed just about everybody in the school.
At morning tea Mr F took a photo of it. I didn’t eat any
morning tea because i was too busy with the stick insect.
A boy in another clasroom whacked the insect with his pink hat. After that it has a broken leg.
After the bell went for the end of morning tea I stuck the stick insect on the tree outside Room 8.
I wonder if he’s still there? He is! We just went for a look and he has climbed higher up the tree.

On Saturday, in Auckland, I had two choices. Number one
was to go to the museum. Number two was to go to the star
I chose the museum and it was really cool. I saw a
green moray eel and a moa. I saw the dinosaur bones from the
T-Rex named Sue. I found out that the female T-Rex on
Walking with Dinosaurs was Sue. I also found out that the
Auckland Zoo once had a male elephant.
I saw a species of Salmon in the Weird and Wonderful and in the Wild Child we saw a stuffed stoat or a ferret.
The next day was sunny in Auckland so I decided to go to the
park. When I was going out I saw a weta in the hole of
the gate. When I was on the bridge I saw fish in
the stream. I rushed to get my net. I rushed down
to catch one. I kept on missing, but at the end, when I
saw one under the weed, I caught one.
Later on we went to the pet store to get a pet. I saw some snake
head turtles and some blue tongue lizards and a white goggley eyed
fish and a bearded dragon and a litte puppy
labrador. Kelly decided to get a Siamese cat. It meowed
a lot in the car. It was very shy. When I
last saw it she was in a corner.
I would have liked to have got a snake head turtle.
